1:49am
>> people say you don't want to squeeze it too firmly. i disagree. you want to gift a good mix. you want to mix it's fish endly. if your balls are too firm, it means that you don't have enough bread in the meatballs. you don't have enough ricotta cheese in the meatballs, not because you squeeze them too tight. the problem if you don't squeeze them or they break apart. >> no one wants broken balls. that is the worst. >> that is the worst. i like to line them up. >> am in -- anal retentive about it. >> 24 minutes. 450 degrees. perfect. >> quick, boom. all right. so the meatballs are cooked, they're out of the oven, smelling and looking good. your classic dish. the meatball sub. let's put the bad boy together. >> we have a rustic italian baguette. a little olive oil. give it a good toast. next step is i am going to give it a really healthy ladle of tomato.

2:01am
and now the white house has issued its response. this seems to be the election of the surprise video here. so now it is the president's turn. >> it is october. >> five weeks and counting. >> yep. and then the anchorwoman who used her own newscast to respond to criticism about her waktd. her on-air message has triggered a nationwide outpouring. later this half-hour, caught on tape. nicki minaj lets loose with a blue streak, cursing out mariah carey in a big "american idol" battle. we'll have it coming up later in ""the skinny."" we talked a few weeks ago how the two divas are not fans of each other. now, again, more video, surprise video this morning, nicki and mariah, claws out. >> good publicity and good press for the show. ratings will be up, you know that. >> we love each other in case
2:02am
you were wondering. first, american airlines in something of a thaw in the frigid relations between the company and its pilots' union. >> they will be back at the table later this week. talks aimed at a new pilots labor contract. the union rejected american's most recent offer back in august, but now union leaders say they will seek an industry standard contract. >> american is also dealing with plenty of flight problems. the latest came yesterday during a scheduled flight from dallas to st. louis. the plane was forced to turn become to dallas after ten minutes in the air. >> passengers were told to brace for a crash landing, but thankfully it never happened. they were put on another plane and ultimately arrived safely. >> that incident came as american got to the bottom of its problem with the seats coming loose. abc's jim avila reports. >> reporter: boston's logan field, one of american's boeing 757s, 47 of which nearly the half the fleet taken out of service as the troubled airline tries to make sure no more of its coach seats come loose in flight, as they have three separate time
2:03am
>> our seats, 14 abc i think are totally disconnected. >> somehow in the installation process of our seats we introduced a failure. not sure mechanical failure or human failure. >> reporter: american saying it identified what caused three flights to be aborted in mid flight because seats came loose. in one case, flipping passengers on their backs. the seats came in rows of three. and the row is held to the floor with what is called a saddle clamp. it's that clamp that was improperly installed on the planes where the seats disengaged. >> on the safety side of this particular situation, american is doing all that it can do to ensure that the seats are being looked at and making sure they're installed as correctly as they're supposed to be. >> reporter: american says the investigation is still under way, but so far the airline cannot give a solid answer as to why now. these seats have been in use for up to 20 years and never come loose before. aviation sources say the last eyes and hands on the saddle clamps in all three loose seat incidents belong to company mechanics. leading to suspicions of possible sabotage.
2:04am
but safety experts tell abc news that would be a first. >> to deliberately think that somebody would do something to a seat track assembly to cause it to come loose during flight is just something that is not thought of in this industry. >> reporter: the mechanics' union, which lost jobs to outsourcing, says it had nothing do with the loose seats and points to the new private maintenance. just the latest series of labor troubles for american airlines, which has suffered more than 2,200 delays in 75 cancellations, on time only 57% of the time. american airlines says it is ruling out sabotage. they believe that the installation mistakes are the result of human or mechanical errors. jim avila, abc news, new york. with hours to go until the presidential debate, the obama campaign is being accused of being racially divisive. at issue now are previously
2:05am
unreported remarks made by then candidate obama to largely african-american audience back in 2007. obama suggested the federal government overlooked new orleans' residents suffering in the wake of hurricane katrina. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your money? makes no sense! tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> the founder of the conservative website that released the tape says those comments are evidence obama was quote, whipping up hatred and fear. meanwhile the obama campaign released this statement. it says, quote, in a transparent attempt to change the sumg from his comments attacking half of the american people, mitt romney's allies recirculated
2:06am
video of the 2007 event that was open to and extennively covered by the press at the time. >> and romney's camp responded to this saying they had absolutely no involvement, the communications director said i don't know what the news is. i didn't even really see a point as to why the video was released. again it was because -- this video came out -- this happened five years ago. it was previously unreported, some of the remarks because not all of the networks were there. and what was reported was just snippets and prepared remarks from obama's campaign. >> right. that's why it has kind of come out now. as any of you who watch the show. i lived in new orleans. lived there ten years. through hurricane katrina. and you know, just from, speak on the new orleans example for a second, obviously a lot of play. but one, beyond the race, the magnitude of what happened, 90% of the city under water, coupled with bad politics, between the mayor, governor, governor and president, all that played a
2:07am
role, i think, in some of the reprehensible scenes you saw after the storm to say it was simile racist is kunld of, underestimated the extent of the problems we saw in '05. so we'll see how this plays tonight. >> he said poor people need help with basic skills, how to shop, how to show up for work on time, how to wear the right clothes, how to act appropriately. and he also said -- we don't need to build highways, out in the suburbs. we should be investing in minority owned businesses in our neighborhoods. >> a lot of politicians pander to the crowd. >> the president's inflection and cadence was different in that video the way he was speaking was different talking to a largely black crowd. but, again, after that jeremiah wright situation, the big controversy of his campaign came out and gave a widely praised speech in philadelphia that called for racial reconciliation. he said, look, as a country we have not gotten the issue of race relations right and called for unity and distanced himself from jeremiah wright. officially. so it's complicated as always. >> highly sensitive. the hunt is on along the u.s./mexico border for those responsible for the death of an american border patrol agent. 30-year-old nicholas ivy was
2:08am
killed early yesterday in what is being described as an ambush. another agent was also wounded in the attack. what's unclear is weather ivy's death was the work of one of mexico's drug cartels. he was killed in an area that is notorious for drug trafficking. at least eight wildfires are burning in northwestern minnesota this morning. onditions. one fire is finally under control after destroying about a half dozen homes in the town of carlshead. it burned through 12 square miles and forced the evacuation of half of the houston, including a school and a nursing home. here is your wednesday weather. more gusty wind from washington state to the minnesota fire zone. a wintry day in montana with up to 10 inches of mountain snow. snow? >> here we go. >> a foggy morning. commute in the northeast. showers, thunderstorms from the carolinas into florida. >> still great in miami. 90 degrees there. 80s in dallas and new orleans. 70s from minneapolis to new york. 50 in billings. still hot in phoenix. 101. well, more proof this morning that everything is bigger in texas. and this one is literally as big

now we turn to our -- boom -- "favorite story of the day." this one is really interesting about an anchorwoman at wkbt, lacrosse, wisconsin, who normally reports the news like we do. >> jennifer livingston is the one making the headlines and spreading the message of confidence and empowerment far beyond wisconsin. it all started with a message from a viewer, who took aim at jennifer livingston's weight, writing, "i was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition has not improved for many years. surely you don't consider yourself a suitable example for this community's young people. girls in particular." on her own newscast, livingston, the mother of three young girls, decided it was time to respond. >> so you know nothing about me other than what you see on the outside. and i am much more than a number on a scale. >> for more than four minutes she faced the camera and the criticism. it has touched off a chorus of kindness.
2:15am
one person saying that viewer could not have been more wrong. the message you are sending young women is that beauty and brains come in many forms. but livingston says the story isn't just about her. reminding viewers, that october is national anti-bullying month. >> to all of the children out there who feel lost, who are struggling with your weight, with the color of your skin, your sexual preference, your disability, even the acne on your face, listen to me right now. do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies. learn from my experience that the cruel words of one are nothing compared to the shouts of many. >> reporter: those shout, some viewed by the viewer who wrote, all i can say is that you are a beautiful person all around, jennifer livingston, just the way you are." >> she's going to be on ""gma"" later this morning as well.
2:16am
it's interesting too. on one point i see you have to address it. but we get so many negative e-mails as well. it's almost better sometimes to let those naive, ignorant comments go because they come in waves. >> to acknowledge it would give it power. you have to. >> that was a dignified message. >> yes, it was. >> especially with anti-bullying month here. and this month. in october for her to address it that way. was pretty powerful. hopefully that is an example young girls take from the situation not the comment but her response to it. it was classy. you and i both know, we take our hits up here. people, blessed with the anonymity of face book and twitter say all kind of horrible, nasty, horribly nasty incorrect things. we go, okay. you resist the urge to go, let me tell you something. and you keep that cool. and play nice. >> which is hard to do sometimes. >> yes, isn't it? >> i think some times we acquiesced to that immaturity. >> every now and then. some days, i don't hold it back. i have written a few people back, let me tell you something. generally speaking, it's good to play it cool. she did it classy.
2:17am

card for tonight's matchup. >> getting juicy, five weeks to go. also ahead, when you see something, say something, run straight into halloween season. we'll see how a scary costume triggered real fears of actual terrorism. that is a popular campaign, i know here in new york, other parts of the country, in terms of watching your surroundings, reports terrorists, if you see something, say something, and people did. >> oh, yeah. aware of your surroundings. later how eating fast food, lots and lots of it can earn you rather some cold hard cash all in the name of science. i should actually enlist in that focus group. >> we could be millionaires. great -- all the food on this show. >> we would be large -- living literally. first, the manhunt along the u.s./mexico border. president obama has called the family of 30-year-old border patrol agent nicholas ivy who was killed early yesterday.
2:32am
>> mr. obama promised that ivy's family that those responsible will be found. abc's cecilia vega reports from southern, arizona. >> reporter: it is remote, dangerous, and deadly, and it was here on this dusty stretch of land where arizona meets mexico that three border patrol agents were fired on. one made it out safely. another was shot twice and expected to recover. but the third agent, 30-year-old nicholas ivy, was shot dead. >> we suspect that this is probably some type of narcotics trafficking event. that these agents encountered. but at this time, that would be speculative. >> reporter: the three agents headed to a spot just three miles north of the border. as they headed up a desert hill, someone fired right at them in what is being described as an ambush. the agents work in the naco, arizona, station, named two weeks ago for brian terry, the last border patrol agent fatly shot on duty. his 2010 death from a firearm
2:33am
sold through the notorious fast and furious operation, ignited a firestorm. it is unknown if the weapon that killed ivy has any link to that now-famous controversy. what is clear here is just how dangerous life can be. >> agent ivy died in the line of duty, protecting our nation against those who threaten our way of life. his death only strengthens our resolve. >> reporter: the terrain out here is so rough it could be days before agents are done processing this crime scene. for now the flags here at this station remain lowered and the agents here remain in mourning. cecilia vega, abc news, naco, arizona. >> our thanks to cecilia. president obama and mitt romney have been mostly behind closed doors ahead of their debate tonight in denver. that's left their running mates to generate some fireworks, so to speak, on the campaign trail. vice president joe biden got things started with this comment about romney's economic plans. >> how they can justify raising
2:34am
taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree! that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney as the next president of the united states. biden later tried to dig himself out of the mess by explaining that the middle class had been buried by policies supported by the republicans. trying to, yeah, dig himself out of that line. >> joe's always -- he's never dull. love him or hate him, he's always saying something interesting. and headline-worthy, interesting. everyone talking about the video released last night as well. conservative website dug up a video of the president speaking to an audience back in 2007. saying a racially polarizing, racially divisive speech, referenced jeremiah wright, the federal government's response to katrina, new orleans, seven
2:35am
years ago. so that could play a role in the d debait tonight. it may not. it's been the election so far, interesting taped moments. that's for sure. >> it could -- but i think mitt romney in the past has distanced himself away from anything that had to deal with jeremiah wright and connection with obama and his camp said i don't see this as newsworthy and had absolutely nothing do with it. i'd kind of be surprised if they would go there. >> in the news cycle until 9:00 tonight when the debate gets rolling. >> yes, exactly. >> that's for sure. more political news this morning -- voters in pennsylvania will not have to show a photo i.d. before casting their presidential ballot next month. a judge has put a temporary hold on the state's new law. abc's t.j. winick explains. >> reporter: 93-year-old vivian applewhite cast her first vote for president back in 1932 for franklin roosevelt. but because she didn't have the required documents to obtain a photo i.d. she almost didn't have a chance to vote this november. it turns out applewhite will be
2:36am
able to vote after a judge blocked pennsylvania's controversial new voter i.d. lae sidecioersial new voter i.d. lae >> at the end of the day this is a victory for democrats because they can argue that no longer would the kind of voters that they want to bring to the polls or encourage to go to the polls would be turned away. at the same time, for republicans, winning pennsylvania was always a stretch. >> reporter: under the ruling voters can still be asked for identification but can't be discouraged from voting or disenfranchised if they don't have the proper i.d. >> they can go ahead and vote nairks but the safe bet is to have ichld dchld and speed the whole process. >> reporter: supporters of voter i.d.s say the laws weren't passed to exclude voters just to protect against voter fraud. critics say the real issue is voter suppression, not voter fraud, pointing out nearly every state legislature that passed tougher voter i.d. laws is
2:37am
controlled by republicans. >> this is a victory today for the people and a loss for the scheming and lying legislators in harrisburg who thought they could hijack the presidential election. >> reporter: judge simpson's ruling could allow the law to go into full effect neck year in pennsylvania and could issue a permanent injunction as a part of the ongoing legal challenge to the law's constitutionality. rob and paula? >> thank you, t.j. we have seen the issue in texas, south carolina, wisconsin, all had their issues here. in pennsylvania this law had it gone into effect would have impacted 89,000 voters, 1%. also in the news, similar front, in mississippi yesterday, the state attorney general said their voter i.d. law will not go into effect as well for this election cycle. >> still, the majority of americans regardless of what side of the aisle you are on support voter i.d. laws. georgia, a couple years, when they implemented voting went up. more people voted because of it. >> the issue is timing of
2:38am
things. mostly in pennsylvania, republican leader of the stat house, get up on video and say, if we do this voter i.d. law, it will allow mitt romney to win the state. a political undercurrent left a bad taste in folks' mouths. there is more than democracy playing out. i think some folks were wary of. >> and if they don't have the i.d., they have to have a social security card or birth certificate, and some don't even have that. more legal drama in the jerry sandusky sex scandal at penn state. a former graduate assistant says he saw sandusky molesting a boy agains millions in damages. he says he was defame and miss represented. a halloween costume created such a scare that the bomb squad had to be called in. a driver wearing a gas mask and camouflage jacket with an attached grenade was pulled over in san mateo, california. but gilberto mateas was not a terrorist. he actually works at a store that sells halloween costumes and is required to wear his costume for work. now police confiscated his dummy
2:39am
grenade and cleared a half block. >> i knew it was going to attract people's attention, but i didn't thing they were going to go as far as to be worried and call 911. >> now his manager says he used poor judgment by driving to work wearing that costume here. he is due in court next month for possessing a fake grenade. so, interesting times. at least people are keeping their eyes open and paying attention to their surroundings. so that's good. >> mm-hmm. well, the u.s. birth rate is down again, and government analysts blame it on a very weak economy. a new report just out this morning shows that the number of births fell 1% last year. it's fourth annual decline in a row. fewer than 4 million babies were born last year, the lowest since 1998. but analysts say the trend is reversing because the economy is improving. on that note, i think i am ready for another. >> really? talking about this. you got two. are you ready? >> some of my friend have had babies.
2:40am
>> you've got the fever. >> you see a little baby. >> and they smell good. >> and they grow up and they're 3 and 5 and drive mommy and daddy crazy. they're good. a look at your wednesday weather, everybody. thick morning fog in boston, new york, and d.c. thunderstorms from the carolinas southward. gusty wind from seattle to minneapolis. up to a foot of snow in montana mountains. >> 50s from billings into the dakotas. 80s in colorado springs. albuquerque and across the south mostly 70s in the northeast as well as the midwest. and here's a truly great story all about a guy named adam greenberg. he was on a one-game contract with the florida marlins last night for their game against the mets. >> it was his first game in the big leagues since 2005 when he was hit in the head by the first pitch he every saw in the majors. he suffered severe headaches, other problems and never returned to a major league club. >> until last night. greenberg faced, knuckleballer, r.a. dickey and was replaced
2:41am
before playing the field. even so he called his brief return magical. and i can just imagine the psychological moment for him to step back on the field and step into the batter's box for the first time after taking -- >> can you imagine? first time out of the gate and get beamed like that. but he came back out. that's all that counts. >> that's right. >> very cool. coming up -- one of the people the pope trusted the most answers to some very serious accusations. and later -- getting paid by doctors to pig out on fast food. relish this thought and head to the drive-through. you are watching "world news now." ♪ i'm just a cheeseburger in paradise ♪ >> announcer: "world news now" with brought to you by tide. move back home after college. wels we were enjoying our empty nest. and now it's just a nest full of laundry. lucky underwear. we were going through so much of that bargain detergent... and the clothes didn't look as good. but since we switched to tide, we use much less. their clothes are looking much more...uh... what's the word? clean? employable.

paolo gabriele. welcome back, everybody. a dramatic day in rome at the trial of the pope's former butler. he did take the stand and admitted that he took thousands of documents from the pope's private apartment and then leaked them to the media. >> now, even with that admission, he said he is innocent because he did it for the good of the church. here's abc's jeffrey kofman. >> reporter: the pope's butler has confessed he stole the documents from his boss and leaked them to the media to expose evil and corruption in the church. paolo gabriele is in court here facing vatican justice, and we are getting a rare glimpse inside a world that feeds on secrecy. >> gabriele seemed calm, serious, a bit tense at times. >> reporter: no one was closer to the pope, waking him in the morning, bring him his meals. when investigators raided gabriele's apartment, they carried off 82 boxes of evidence, including stolen documents. gabriele is accused of being the
2:46am
source of damaging leaks as well as best-selling books that portray the vatican as a sea of corruption and crohnyism, construction contracts given to friends, people buying audiences with the pope for $13,000. >> it's become painfully clear that he does not have his hand on the rudder. i mean he looks very much like a weak pope. >> reporter: the pope returned here to the vatican after three months at his summer residence outside rome. at 85 he is noticeably in decline, his papacy tainted by the leaked documents that paint a portrait of a leader blind to the intrigue and infighting all around him. as for gabriele, a 46-year-old father of three who lives at the vatican, he has said he leaked the documents out of loyalty to the pope inspired by the holy spirit. no one here believes the butler really did it on his own. now these proceedings are meant to last only a couple of days. gabriele could face four years in prison. but he has already asked the pope for a pardon.
2:47am
and we're told that is a very likely outcome here. jeffrey kofman, abc news, at the vatican. >> that's a fascinating story. the butler did it. that's crazy. >> if he asked for the pardon, you wonder if he will get forgiveness or not. >> you have to wonder. i think it's a shame, their trusted aide takes private documents out of your private apartment and all that. on the other hand, what's fascinating is that it gives you a look inside the vatican, the church, folks otherwise would not have seen. looks like it may be vulnerable to some of the same issues and problems and fallible humans that other org nices are, so interesting read. >> claiming corruption, cronyism, back door payments in return for favors. sound like a novel. >> indeed. >> still to come, cheeseburgers, fries, milk shakes in the name of science. >> why people are loading up on the fast food and getting paid amazing money to do it. it's all coming up. >> announcer: abc's "world news now" will continue after this from our abc stations.
2:48am
2:49am
♪ cheeseburger in paradise ♪ heaven on earth ♪ now this next story either seems like a dream come true or a disaster waiting to happen. eating fast food every day and getting paid thousands to do it. >> big money here. it's all a new experiment conducted by doctors to measure exactly what fast food diets can do to you. abc's john donvan has the story. >> reporter: hitting the fast food drive through for science. >> can i get five soft tacos? >> can i get two sausage burritos? >> can i get a number four? >> reporter: over and over and over again. it has been dave's life the past three months or so as has been eating the food. a precisely measured, 1,000
2:50am
calories a day, extra meal daily, fast food only. how many calories? >> 770. >> reporter: why? this man is paying them to. dr. samuel klein is a researcher at washington university medical school in st. louis trying to understand why weight gain leads to diseases like diabetes and hypertension and how that relates to fat in the live and muscles. at some point research on rats alone just is not enough. somebody has to eat the food. this way -- >> it has to come to people. >> announcer: attention overweight volunteers. >> reporter: a radio ad offered a cash incentive up to $3,500 depending how long it would take. >> once i got to work i called right away. >> reporter: so did nurse dawn freeman. >> it probably took a month -- >> reporter: to get approved? >> -- to get approved. >> reporter: so they ate every day from one of five restaurants until their weight went up a target 5%, 6%. dawn in eight weeks went from 170 to 186. doesn't look like a lot. but here's how it felt. >> for two weeks it was all right. then i started really feeling awful. i couldn't hardly breathe anymore. >> reporter: same thing for
2:51am
dave because he learned weight is miss tear just. it doesn't go up in a straight line at all. he actually lost one week. it took him three months to put on 18 pounds. and near the end -- you just want this thing to be over? >> yeah, i am done with it now. done with it. >> reporter: down the road this research may help find therapies for obesity related diseases. way before that dave will have to take the weight off. that's what he needs to complete to get his last $50. john donovan, abc news, st. louis. >> wow. all this may remind you of morgan spurlock's "super-size me" a documentary years ago, the piece where he ate mcdonald's for 30 days, three times day, ended up gaining almost 25 pounds as a

welcome back, everybody. time for "the mix." i wanted to show you all this little device right here. this is actually an alarm clock. now, i've set it to try go off at the right moment, but because it's live tv, it will not work. this thing is called clocky. it is not new. what it does here, goes off makes a typical alarm clock sound here. but the trick actually is that if you hit snooze, as we're all guilt of, stay in bed an extra half hour, these two wheels roll off the table. it goes around the room, working around the edges of your bedstand and night table, forcing you to get out of the bed to go shut it off and get up.
2:56am
instead of sitting in bed, what we do, snoozing, snoozing. snoozing. it may not go off. as i predicted on schedule here. i tried. don't be alarmed. if it goes off in your segment. very cool. i used this in new orleans. when i did the morning segment. any second. you will know when it goes off. >> a sleep theme here, right? >> yes. >> get closer, i think my mike is off. recent studies. [ alarm sounding ] >> that is annoying as you know what. i think if you hit snooze, the thing rolls off. i know it won't do it on the air. all right. that was anti-climactic. tl point is it would roll off the table. roll on your floor. wake you up. forcing you to get up. all right, go ahead. >> supposed to come closer. my mike is off. >> there is a new study. >> hey you come here often. >> hey. >> hey how you doing? >> eight hours uninterrupted rule is false. >> that's good for us.
2:57am
>> natural state is to have segmented period of sleep. two chunks. they're saying, really, the main culprit of this is invention of the light bulb. back in the day, they used to go to bed after the sun went down, wake up for an hour, do whatever, and then go back to sleep. so basically two strucks. >> so eight hour, it's all a myth. we should not strive for that. it's not going to happen. >> to sleep in chunks. is okay. >> speaking of getting a good sleep. >> i love this story. >> need a little cuddle. >> story out of japan. a sleep shop. cuddle shop. >> oh, look. clocky. clocky. look. it's going. look. we're going to test our director here tonight, see if he can get it. look at this thing. it's awful. but imagine that thing going around your bedroom. >> it's dark. >> it's dark. stumbling. i swear to you i used this thing when did the morning show in new orleans. and that's what -- that's the alarm clock, folks. >> oh, my word.

3:03am
>> reporter: biden later tried to dig himself out. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and the ryan supported. >> reporter: except for debate prep, it was a politics-free day for the presidential contenders. romney had lunch at chipotle while president obama paid a visit to the hoover dam. both candidates have spent hours in debate sessions and both have challenges. aides say the president is working on keeping his answers short to not sound like professor obama. in order to win over undecided voters, romney needs to appear relatable and offer specifics on his agenda. >> he has to find something more than just discussing how bad the economy is or blaming the president for how much the economy continues to struggle. >> reporter: all the prep work comes down to just 90 minutes. both candidates, one stage in a high-stakes showdown. karen travers, abc news, denver. the president's campaign is dealing with an october surprise so to speak this morning after video of an old speech resurfaced. at issue, previously unreported

remarks made by then senator obama to a largely african-american audience back in 2007. now, obama suggested that the federal government overlooked new orleans residents suffering in the wake of hurricane katrina as opposed to disasters victims in other parts of the country such as 9/11. president obama also praised jeremiah wright, calling him a friend and leader. the obama campaign says the video's release is an attempt by romney supporters to shift the focus away from romney's 47% secret videotape. romney's campaign says they had no involvement in the release. they even go so far as to say, what's the news? i don't know. that's straight from romney's communications director. >> right. you have to wonder, will this be an issue in tonight's debate. the jeremiah wright thing was a racially tinged scandal, led the president to give the speech in philadelphia that was widely
3:05am
hailed, saying, look, race is a complex issue in the country, always has been. we have yet to perfect and come to terms with yet. here we are again. we'll see if this has an impact and whose base it may rile up or not rile up. >> yeah. a lot of people are questioning whether or not it's news. this was a covered speech. but according to some even within the abc family, they said at the time, the campaign only put out prepared remarks in a prepared newspaper, posted only a nine-minute edited version. abc and networks, was based on prepared remarks, not really what was said at the podium. definitely aster that i'm sure many outlets will be following. >> it's going to get some attention for sure. a lot going on in politics. that brings us to our facebook "question of the day" today. >> yep. we want to know what are you hoping to hear from the candidates in to night's debate. log on to our facebook page, wnnfans.com. make sure you weigh in. got to hear your voice. >> be sure to tune in to abc news tonight for the big debate in denver. our coverage and analysis begins

this morning on "world news now" -- aiine acti this morning on "world news now" -- airline action. american airlines and its pilots union agree to resume talks in their bitter labor standoff. meanwhile the mystery of loose seats on three american flights may have been solved. it's wednesday, october 3rd. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." good wednesday morning, everyone. i'm paula faris. >> and i'm rob nelson. there are new problems for american airlines with landing gear trouble forcing an emergency landing. we'll get to that coming up in just a second. man, they have the seats, now landing gear issues, having a rough couple days. also ahead, video resurfaces of president obama as a candidate five years ago, talking about racial issues in the wake of hurricane katrina, and now the white house has issued its response.
3:31am
this seems to be the election of the surprise video here. so now it's the president's turn. >> it is october. >> five weeks and counting. >> yep. and then the anchorwoman who used her own newscast to respond to criticism about her weight. her on-air message has triggered a nationwide outpouring. and later this half hour, caught on tape, nicki minaj lets loose with a blue streak, cursing out mariah carey in a big "american idol" battle. we'll have it coming up later in "the skinny." we talked a few weeks ago how the two divas are not fans of each other. now, again, more video, surprise video this morning, nicki and mariah, claws out. >> it's good publicity, good press for the show. ratings will be up, you know that. >> we love each other in case you were wondering. first, american airlines in something of a thaw in the frigid relations between the company and its pilots union. >> they will be back at the table later this week.
3:32am
talks aimed at a new pilots labor contract. the union rejected american's most recent offer back in august, but now union leaders say they will seek an industry standard contract. >> american's also dealing with plenty of flight problems. the latest came yesterday during a scheduled flight from dallas to st. louis. the plane was forced to turn back to dallas after just ten minutes in the air. >> passengers were told to brace for a crash landing, but thankfully it never happened. they were put on another plane and ultimately arrived safely. >> that incident came as american got to the bottom of its problem with seats coming loose. abc's jim avila reports. >> boston's logan field, one of american's boeing 757s, 47 of which, nearly half the fleet, taken out of service as the troubled airline tries to make sure no more of its coach seats come loose in flight, as they have three separate times. >> our seats, 14-a, b, and c, i think, are totally disconnected.
3:33am
>> somehow in the installation process of our seats we introduced a failure. not sure mechanical failure or human failure. >> american is saying it has identified what caused three flights to be aborted in mid flight because seats came loose. in one case, flipping passengers on their backs. the seats came in rows of three. and the row is held to the floor with what's called a saddle clamp. it's that clamp that was improperly installed on the planes where the seats disengaged. >> on the safety side of this particular situation, american's coin all that it can do right now to ensure that those seats are being looked at and making sure that they're installed as correctly as they're supposed to be. >> american says the investigation is still under way, but so far the airline cannot give a solid answer as to why now. these seats have been in use for up to 20 years and never come loose before. aviation sources say the last eyes and hands on the saddle clamps in all three loose seat incidents belong to company
3:34am
me cannics, leading to suspicions of possible sabotage. but safety experts tell abc news that would be a first. >> to deliberately think that somebody would do something to a seat track assembly to cause it to come loose during flight is just something that is not thought of in this industry. >> the mechanics union, which lost jobs to outsourcing, says it had nothing do with the loose seats and points to the new private maintenance. just the latest series of labor troubles for american airlines, which has suffered more than 2,200 delays and 75 cancellations, on time only 57% of the time. american airlines says it is ruling out sabotage. they believe that the installation mistakes are the result of human or mechanical errors. jim avila, abc news, new york. with hours to go until the presidential debate, the obama campaign is being accused of being racially divisive. at issue now are previously unreported remarks made by then candidate obama to largely african-american audience back
3:35am
in 2007. obama suggested that the federal government overlooked new orleans residents suffering in the wake of hurricane katrina. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your money? makes no sense! tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> the founder of the conservative website that released the tape says those comments are evidence obama was, quote, whipping up hatred and fear. meanwhile the obama campaign did lease this statement. it says, quote, in a transparent attempt to change the subject from his comments attacking half of the american people, mitt romney's allies recirculated video of the 2007 event that was open to and extensively covered by the press at the time. >> and romney's camp responded
3:36am
to this saying they had absolutely no involvement, and his own communications director said i don't even know what the news is. i didn't even really see a point as to why the video was released. again it was because -- this video came out -- this happened five years ago, but it was previously unreported, some of the remarks, because not all of the networks were there. and what was reported was just snippets and prepared remarks from obama's campaign. >> right. that's why it has kind of come out now. as any of you who watch the show know, i lived in new orleans, lived there ten years through hurricane katrina. and you know, just from, speak on the new orleans example for a second, obviously a lot of play. but one, beyond the race, the magnitude of what happened, 90% of the city under water, coupled with bad politics, between the mayor, governor, governor and president, all that played a role, i think, in some of the reprehensible scenes you saw after the storm to say it was simply racist, i think, is kind
3:37am
of underestimating the extent of the problems we saw in '05. so we'll see how this plays tonight. >> he said poor people need help with basic skills, how to shop, how to show up for work on time, how to wear the right clothes, how to act appropriately. and he also said -- we don't need to build highways, out in the suburbs. we should be investing in minority-owned businesses in our neighborhoods. >> is what they do, a lot of politicians pander to the crowd. >> the president's inflection and cadence was different in that video the way he was speaking was different talking to a largely black crowd. but, again, after that jeremiah wright situation, the big controversy of his campaign, came out and gave a widely praised speech in philadelphia that called for racial reconciliation. he said, look, as a country we have not gotten the issue of race relations right and called for unity and distanced himself from jeremiah wright. officially. so it's complicated as always. >> highly sensitive. well, the hunt is on along the u.s./mexico border for those responsible for the death of an american border patrol agent.

this one is really interesting about an anchorwoman at wkbt, lacrosse, wisconsin, who normally reports the news like we do. >> mm-hmm. but suddenly jennifer livingston is the one making headlines and spreading the message of confidence and empowerment far beyond wisconsin. it all started with a message from a viewer, who took aim at jennifer livingston's weight, writing, "i was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition has not improved for many years. surely you don't consider yourself a suitable example for this community's young people. girls in particular. on her own newscast, livingston, the mother of three young girls, decided it was time to respond. >> so you know nothing about me but what you see on the outside, and i am much more than a number on a scale. >> for more than four minutes she faced the camera and the criticism. it has touched off a chorus of kindness, one person saying that
